The Plain Dealer has been awarded a Judges’ Special Recognition for art direction for their Browns Town series.

From the judges:

Comics can get old very quickly. They sustained this excellence, playing off the news of season, and maintained such a high level of consistency throughout the year.

It’s hard to plan the content alone, but then the illustrations were so brilliantly done. The humor of these is actually wonderful as well, and that’s tough to pull off.
